CUDDALORE: Furnace oil, spilled over from a tanker lorry, on its way to a firm in SIPCOT, created panic among the residents on Monday.

The driver lost control over the vehicle and it overturned at Sellangkuppam. And he, along with his assistant, escaped from the spot.

Fearing an explosion, residents in the area did not come out of their houses for several hours in the morning. TN Fire and Rescue Service Personnel, however, reached the spot. Cuddalore Old Town police registered a case.
